Some key sights and sounds from NU’s practice Saturday:
A Husker fan walking by and taking pictures with his iPhone of reporters standing outside the Hawks Championship Center, waiting to talk to Bo Pelini. “I want to take a picture of the guys who write the stories I read,” he said.
NU players walking off the practice field in just jerseys and shorts. The full-padded practice was coming later in the evening.
“Next week is no bigger than this week. Every week’s big and every day is big. We have to use every opportunity to get better. So far, I think our guys have approached it that way. It’s important that they get the rest after today and they use tomorrow the right way. They have a day off, and with what we have coming up, it’s important our guys are off their feet and mature and understanding what we have ahead of us.” — Pelini, on the grind of two-a-day practices coming up
